Knowing the Economy of God is based on four principles or anchors from the Bible that teach Christians how to establish a foundation for life in order to manage their finances in God´s economy. These four principles - ownership, stewardship, giving, and contentment - are the valuable anchors to understanding God´s economy. When we understand these wise principles from the Bible, we can face financial challenges with wisdom, learn to become faithful managers of our money, and find true contentment.

Il est finalement plus facile de vendre quand quelqu´un achète´´, aurait dit Gracchus Cassar.

Juste au sens de la justesse. Éric Vérin, qui a déroulé du câble sur le sujet dont il traite ici, situe chaque étape de la vente dans le contrepoint des étapes de l´achat. Votre acheteur est-il un allié ou un gladiateur, un bienveillant ou un manipulateur ?

Elder abuse has been called the crime of the 21st century. Everyone´s parent is at risk when certain factors are present. Don´t allow your aging parent to be ripped off because you weren´t paying attention. This minibook explains how to manage an aging parent´s money legally and safely, and with confidence that you´re doing the right thing. Money can be a sticky issue for families, especially when one is faced with the idea of taking over control of an elder´s checkbook. Handling money competently requires the ability to pay attention to details, keep track of expenditures, and to be aware of what one has to spend. When our aging parents begin to ´´slip´´ in these areas, adult children can become confused about who has the right to do what. This concise book describes how to take over the finances when the time comes, and what legal documents you must have in order to be in charge of an aging parent´s money. It walks you through the process of assuming responsibility with a power of attorney for finances. It tells you what a guardianship is, and when one might be necessary. It also discusses a growing problem in our society: financial elder abuse. You´ll find value in How to Handle Money for Aging Loved Ones. Author, Carolyn L. Rosenblatt, is a registered nurse and an attorney with over 40 years of combined experience in her two professions. She is a consultant and mediator with a practice in San Rafael, California. 1.

Financial Statements is a perfect introduction to financial accounting for non-financial managers, stock market investors, undergraduate business and MBA students, lawyers, lenders, entrepreneurs, and more. Most introductory finance and accounting books either fail because they are written by accountants for accountants or the authors ´´dumb down´´ the concepts until they are virtually useless. Financial Statements deftly shows that all this accounting and financial reporting stuff is not rocket science and that anyone can understand it! Thomas R. Ittelson is a scientist, businessman, author, and teacher with many years of hands-on experience in business development and marketing for technical companies. As a consultant to entrepreneurs, Ittelson has written business plans and prepared financial projections that have helped raise more than $500 million in start-up equity capital. 1.

Coopérer avec son client plutôt que de subir passivement la dépendance, telle est l´essence du chemin que nous propose Fabrice LEZEAU. Pour cela quelques enjeux à ne pas perdre de vue : exercer son leadership, différencier le processus du contenu, développer un savoir-faire de conduite stratégique des affaires, utiliser le client comme une ressource pour co-construire des solutions collaboratives. Apparemment, il n´y a pas beaucoup de limites au potentiel commercial. Mais passer du potentiel à la réalité - de la puissance à l´acte aurait dit Aristote qui n´a pas calculé le budget de la Grèce moderne - suppose d´éviter quelques pièges et de suivre les bonnes pistes. Des pistes parfois cachées. Fabrice LEZEAU balise ce chemin avec autant de pertinence que de solide bon sens riveté au socle du succès objectif. À propos de l´auteur : Fabrice Lezeau est co-fondateur du cabinet INTERNESS Consulting, consultant et formateur, coach accrédité et membre associé de la Société Française de Coaching.

For the past 40 years, Richard Koch has wanted to uncover the simple, elemental, elegant and parsimonious principles that are needed to create great new businesses. To qualify, a principle must be so overwhelmingly powerful that anyone can reliably use it towards extraordinary results. Is there any principle that can tell you how to do that consistently and with a high chance of success? Working with venture capitalist Greg Lockwood, his coauthor on Superconnect, and supported by research from the elite firm of OC&C Strategy Consultants, Koch has the answer. The principle Koch and Lockwood have discovered behind extraordinarily successful businesses is simplifying. Some simplify on price - take Ryanair´s budget flights, which still take you from A to B but so cheaply that nearly everyone can afford them, multiplying the size of their market - and some simplify on proposition, such as Apple´s decision to cut down on the number of their product lines and focus on perfecting only a few devices. With case studies of famous companies in all different industries from finance to fast food, the authors show how anyone can analyse their business´ potential to become a simplifier and which route they should take to maximise the impact. 1.

Project managers are no longer judged by the technical success of their projects alone. They´re also held accountable for their contributions to the company´s financial goals. Yet most project managers don´t have the business knowledge necessary to make project-based decisions that lead to bottom-line success. In this audiobook, Dennis Cohen and Robert Graham, both former university professors and experienced project management consultants, provide the skills that, until now, could be gained only through a graduate degree and years of hands-on experience. Cohen and Graham walk project managers through basic business concepts such as value creation, accounting and finance, strategy, and marketing. They connect these concepts to the decisions project managers face every day. And they make it easy to apply the resulting solutions on the job through a unique business systems calculator. Listeners can use the online calculator in conjunction with the book to understand how different project variables affect business outcomes, to determine the overall impact of proposed project changes, and to evaluate the economic results of many decisions they make. Cohen and Graham´s principles apply equally to projects in business, nonprofit, and government organizations. And each one is illustrated through case studies drawn from a range of industries, including pharmaceuticals, the technology sector, even the winemaking business. Whether the mandate is to get new products to market, improve the infrastructure, or better serve customers and clients, this audiobook teaches project managers how to make day-to-day decisions from an upper-management perspective. And it provides a blueprint for planning and pitching potential projects that demonstrates a higher level of business savvy.

Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not. (Thomas Huxley) Simple. Not easy. We try and fail to lose weight, be better partners, get fit, get organized, or fix our finances. We know what to do, but we can´t make ourselves do it. But help has arrived, just in time to rescue your New Year´s resolutions. Gumptionade is a booster for self-improvement plans, like Oxyclean is a booster for laundry detergent. Gumptionade will show you how to stay strong when your beautiful plan comes in contact with reality. The reality of just how difficult it is to make real and lasting change. Consultant and philosopher, Robert O´Connor, begins by putting a name on the elusive power to do what needs to be done, when it needs to be done. It´s gumption: courage, resourcefulness, and common sense in harness together. O´Connor then shows how you can build your gumption in this inspirational, handy collection of practical life instruction sprinkled with maxims such as ´´Don´t confuse Easy and Magic with the work of real change´´; ´´Put excellence before success´´; and ´´Don´t lead with your wallet´´. His advice is firmly supported by true-life examples of gumption-driven problem-solving success stories (e.g., NASA´s Apollo 13 rescue, Billy Beane´s accomplishments with the Oakland A´s, and Texas governor Ann Richards´ victory over political foes and alcohol). O´Connor draws lightly on his own failures and recoveries, then gives concrete ways to rewire destructive thought patterns. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Robert B. O´Connor.

The global economy is entering an era of protracted stagnation, similar to what Japan has experienced for over a decade. That is the message of this brilliant and controversial summary of our current economic predicament from an internationally respected consultant and commentator on financial markets, who predicted the Global Financial Crisis of 2008. The author challenges the assumption that growth can be perpetual and questions the ability of political leaders to enact the tough structural changes needed. He is particularly critical of the ´easy money´ approach to dealing with the great recession of 2008, citing the dangers of excessive debt and deep-seated fundamental imbalances. The fallout of these poor policies, he argues, will affect not only the business sector, but also the lifestyles and prosperity of average citizens and future generations. The author concludes with a thought experiment illustrating the large-scale changes that will be necessary to restore economic, financial, and social sustainability. This experiment has already been tried in Iceland, which went bankrupt in the wake of the 2008 crisis, and now, after a painful adjustment, is on the road to recovery. Told for the lay listener and peppered with witty anecdotes, this audiobook clearly explains the missteps that created the current dilemma, why a recovery has proved elusive, and the difficult remedies that must eventually be applied to ensure a stable future. Satyajit Das is an internationally respected expert in finance, with over 30 years´ experience. He worked for the ´sell side´ (banks such as Citicorp Investment Bank and Merrill Lynch), the ´buy side´ (Treasurer of the TNT Group) and acted as a consultant advising banks, investors, corporations and central banks throughout the world. He has been within touching distance of many of the pivotal events in finance during his long career. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Satyajit Das.
